11:30 am
the president promises the cash is coming. a last-minute rush to get d.c. kids vaccinated before schools start on monday. d.c. has mandated girls as young as 11 get the gardasil vaccine that protects against cervical cancer. parents can opt out without explanation. there is a clinic immunization tonight and then tomorrow you have a chance to get your shots at four schools in the district. more information can be found at a fight posted on you tube. >> it shows two groups of girls, armed with rocks and sticks and a knife. two have been arrested and police say more arrests may be coming. we have more on this fight caught on camera. >> reporter: the tape begins in what appears to be the common area of an apartment complex in the 3700 block of j. street northeast. we have turned off the audio because of the language. the person operating the camera can be heard laughing, then alerting others someone has a
11:31 am
knife. at one point, you can see an adult with a belt. other girls have rocks and sticks. d.c. police don't know who shot the video or who put it online, but they are happy to have it. >> i think this video is just outstanding evidence for us to help us proceed in our case. >> reporter: in this age of social networking sites where all kinds of pictures and videos are posted, it's not uncommon for police to not only find them but use them as well. >> you can google or you tube fights, any type of fight and you can come across various incidents like the one that occurred. >> reporter: but in this case the evidence is there for all to see. at one point several girls chase another down the street. they surround her and begin hitting her. one can be seen kick the girl on the -- kick the girl on the ground and then a car drives wrong way on a one-way street and a boy limps away.
11:32 am
>> she was placed under arrest on the scene by one of our officers and she was presented before the u.s. attorneys office for prosecution. >> reporter: according to court papers, one girl was involved in the fight and had three venile girls in the car with her. >> one has been charged with assault of a deadly weapon. a juvenile has been charged with slaing tires so she couldn't leave the scene. now with a video in hand, investigators are looking to pursue further charges. an investigation made simpler with the assistance of you tube and the person who decided to post it there. in the fox 5 news room, i'm paul wagner. >> and that video has been removed from the website. tucker is joining us on a friday with a look at the all- important weekend. >> the weekend forecast. it will be one of those weekends that starts soggy and ends nice. >> good. >> by sunday it will be beautiful. we have to get there first. we have showers and thunderstorms in the forecast today and some of them will be soakers. we have a very humid air mass
11:33 am
outside. >> where are my three buddy? , hot, haze and humid. >> they might leave town on sunday. we'll look at hd radar. the showers and thunderstorms on their way. yocan see them out t he west. look a -- at the boxes. there is a severe thunderstorm watch into southern pennsylvania just a few moments ago. so we have the showers and thunderstorms starting to break out, out towards hagerstown some shower activity and this is all generally pushing to the east and along this line and very humid out there and very hot as well. but we'll start to see some more showers and thunderstorms bubble up around here during the next couple of hours. i think for the most part it will hold off for a few more hours but late this afternoon a few more showers and thunderstorms even here in washington. and let's look at the bigger picture and the satellite radar.
11:34 am
but i backed this up but you can see the showers and the thunderstorms and the thicker cloud cover developing out to west. so mostly cloudy by late this afternoon. all associated with a code front and it will come through in two partsch the first piece of it later today and the second half of it will get in here as we get into the daytime hours tomorrow. so we're not going to get the threat of a shower or thunderstorm out of the forecast until late tomorrow and into early sunday. and then the cooler and drier air will move in and we'll have a great looking end to the weekend. by sunday afternoon, by monday and tuesday, it will be beautiful around here with the sunshine and lower humidity in the forecast as well. 88 right now at reagan national. fredicsberg, 90. frederick 90. so plenty of heat. and again humidity out ahead of the frontal system and that will supply presentee of energy here as we get into the afternoon and evening hours. because of that, the storm prediction center has given us a slight risk of severe weather today and the concern is thunderstorms that will produce
11:35 am
the possibility of hail, damaging wind and some very heavy rain. we could see some heavy rain as we have a lot of moisture around here in the mid-atlantic at this hour. there is a look at hurricane bill. and ll was looking a little peeked earlier today but the eye emerged, so preintensifying as we speak. the winds up to 120 miles per hour, starting to impact bermuda with rain shower activity, pushing off to the north and west and it will push off to the north, eventually be dragged out to the northeast. so it won't impact land rely, but it will bring very heavy surf. so from the carolinas down toward ocean city and up towards new england, we'll see high surf and he possibility of some damaging riptides here as we get into the weekend. both saturday and sunday, be ready for that if you're headed down to the beaches partly cloudy for us this afternoon. scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms back in the forecast and there could be heavy rain out there.
11:36 am
high temperature about 92 degrees so that's plenty hot. tonight we don't lose the temperatures a whole lot. 75 overnight. scattered showers and thunderstorms and still humid with all of thrain we'll get over the next 12-18 hours. tomorrow, more showers and thunderstorms in the forecast. hopefully we'll get it out of here in time for the redskins game. sunday looks great. sunday afternoon, 85, sunshine, lower humidity. pond -- monday, 83 degrees. overnight lows back in the 60. and tuesday we'll start to warm up again. but again, your busies hazy, hot and humid are going on vacation. >> good. bye-bye. >> very nice. thanks, tucker. does this make sense? >> yeah. just read it. >> okay. after the ballgame, get ready to head to the fair. that doesn't make sense. you knew it didn't make sense. thanks a lot. >> and you fell for it. >> holly is at the arlington county fair and she has a preview of what you can expect
